My husband spent 8 months making this for me as a birthday gift. He posted it on Reddit last week and IGN, CNET and various other websites wrote articles about it. He doesn't have a Craftster account but I felt it belonged here to help inspire other crafters.
He started with the Monopoly board and kept the concept of buying properties and the last player standing wins. The rest of the game however has been enhanced.
He burnt the Fallout logo into a jewelry box that he found at a thrift store.
Here is a picture of the board with Fallout related properties from all versions of the game. (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas)
The first level of the box includes the currency, the cards, the perks, mines and houses.
The drawer includes the tokens, the board and The Wasteland Survival Guide (the manual).
Here are the tokens. Liberty Prime was made out of pieces of Iron Man, Captain America and several army men. He also made a Pipboy 3000, Abraxo cleaner, a Poseidon Energy gas pump, a Nuka Cola machine, a Vault-Tec lunchbox and a six pack of Nuka Cola.
Here's a close up of the Pipboy because it is just so damn impressive!
Here are the properties and the currency. (Nuka Cola Quartz $1, Nuka Cola $5, Nuka Cola Fusion $10, Nuka Cola Quantum $20, Nuka Cola Victory $50, Sunset Sarsaparilla $100, Sunset Sarsaparilla Star $500)
An example of some of the Vault-Tec cards. He made over 100 different ones! There are attack cards that cause other players to lose money. There are gambling cards for the casino properties and several others.
And lastly, some of the perks and what they do. You get one to start out and more as you collect all of one property color.
He put so much time and creativity into this! I am fairly crafty but couldn't imagine modifying a game and coming up with so many new rules. We have played a few times already with friends and it is so much fun!! Thanks for looking! <3
